How to delete Redmine users

Redmine logoI’ve recently transfered all my project planning, development, bug ticketing and repositories to the awesome Redmine project tracking software. From now on all of my development work will live on tracking.42dev.eu

 

To facilitate bug reports and feature planning for my latest WordPress Plugin I’ve activated user registrations in Redmine, so people can post messages on the Forums. Now I wanted to have some sort of mechanism to delete unwanted users from the Redmine database. Since the software has no such option on the webinterface I searched for an alternative and found one on the Redmine forums.

Go to you Redmine install directory and enter the following (substitute USER_ID with the desired value):

>> script/console
>> u = User.find(USER_ID)
>> u.destroy

Make sure, that the user you are deleting doesn’t have any activity on the site yet, otherwise problems could arise, if the user already posted messages etc.

Facebook Send Button WordPress Plugin

Facebook has released their new “Send” button that lets you share content all over the web with selected groups or individuals.
I wrote a little plugin that will insert this button under every post in your blog including the correct permalink.

This is version 0.1 and very basic. Head over to the project site to download and read about upcoming features.

New home page

I’ve restructured this website a bit and gave it a brand new home page.

The blog is now not the default page you reach, when you point your browser to my site. The new homepage mostly lists all the stuff that’s happening around this webpage and my life.

  • Featured posts rotating on top
  • Latest blog posts
  • Latest tweets
  • Recent photos
  • Recent music
  • Recent Foursquare checkins
  • Recent comments
  • My tag cloud
  • Popular posts

Additionally I edited the sidebar and removed some widgets so overall loading time should improve as well.

Fix GrowlMail for OS X 10.6.7 & Mail 4.5

Growl iconIt’s time again to circumvent Apple’s Mail Plugin policy and update the GrowlMail Bundle with the correct identifier string. Otherwise, after updating, Mail will tell you it has disabled the GrowlMail plugin and will move the bundle to ~/Library/Mail/Bundles (disabled).

To amend this, follow these steps:

  1. Quit Mail
  2. Move the GrowlMail.mailbundle Folder back into ~/Library/Mail/Bundles
  3. Enter the following two commands into your Terminal:
    defaults write ~/Library/Mail/Bundles/GrowlMail.mailbundle/Contents/Info SupportedPluginCompatibilityUUIDs -array-add "1C58722D-AFBD-464E-81BB-0E05C108BE06"
    defaults write ~/Library/Mail/Bundles/GrowlMail.mailbundle/Contents/Info SupportedPluginCompatibilityUUIDs -array-add "9049EF7D-5873-4F54-A447-51D722009310"
  4. Start Mail and enjoy Growl notifications for new eMail again!
